A couple of months ago, the screen protector on my phone broke. One of the little plastic tabs that keeps the device attached to the phone itself snapped off, so the protective plate wouldn't stay on.

And a few weeks ago, the screen broke. Not sure how that happened, but it did. It probably could have been prevented with a $15-$20 investment, but we just flat out didn't have the money for that when we needed it; the car cost us $500 last month and we were already scraping.

So the cost to repair the screen came out to $120. Because we couldn't afford $20, we had to spend $120... and then $20 more to make sure it didn't happen again. Being poor is awfully damned expensive because you don't have enough for preventative maintenance and have to prioritize each disaster as it comes in.

So then I got the enrollment paperwork for my group health insurance from work...

I forgot my burger was wrapped in foil inside the paper and accidentally set off a fire in the microwave. =__=

Well, the microwave looks distinctly un-scorched. I don't know about the condition of your burger though.

I meant the microwave here at work.

My burger was okay, though!

When I worked for [grocery store], lacking plates in the break room for my Spaghetti-Os, I just stuck the whole can inside the microwave, figuring, "what could go wrong?"

Ever seen a fireball in real life before? None of this XR bullshit, an actual one.

Certain types and compositions of metal will microwave just fine.  I believe tin and aluminum fall nowhere within that spectrum.

I'm not so sure about aluminum -- although I'm not really sure it was aluminum. I used to microwave a brand of ramen in a cup that apparently had metal-lined lids.

Subsequently, if perhaps coincidentally, that microwave ceased working unusually quick.

I seem to be developing a dairy allergy. Since my diet is about 75% cheese, this is problematic (and also probably why I'm developing a dairy allergy).

Well, on the plus side, I now have the opportunity to use the phrase "mangy bitch" and it's not derogatory, it's descriptive.

Enough time had passed between Brent's post and yours, that for a second I thought you were referencing some sort of horrible Wisconsin disaster.
